Hi guys,

I have a slight problem with one of the PC's..

I reinstalled Windows and everything seems okay except for one problem..

It won't connect to my router through Ethernet because, apprently I haven't installed my Ehternet Controller drivers.

There is a yellow question mark next to my Ethernet Controller in Device Manager.

I'm not exactly sure how I find out what Ethernet Controller I use to go and download the drivers, so I looked under 'Network Adapters' also in Device Manager and it listed is as 'RealTek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC'.

I downloaded these drivers from RealTek and installed them on the troubled computer but to no avail..

Still can't access the Web and the Ehternet Controller aspect in the Device Manager still has the yellow question mark next to it.

Can anyone help shed any light?

Thanks!

PS. This is a custom computer I bought some time ago.

Have you installed the chipset drivers for your board? Some chipsets [nvidia] will install the sound, chipset, and nic drivers all at once.
What motherboard do you have?
Have you checked the support CD that comes with the motherboard? It will have the drivers on it.

Since it is a custom build, you will download these drivers from the board mfg [if you cannot find the support CD]
